A youthful secondby @d-pend
A youthful second
Mechanical trees and paper leaves;
stems and stalks of legacies
sit squat beneath the shaded eaves
of seasons growing wan.
Across the withered lawn and dirt
where older scars run underfoot:
newer creatures run and skirt
the obstacles warm-bright.
The light of clinging March extends
to fondle all the drooping stems
between the brush, around the bends
of springtime soon to pass.
And so, alas, the pollen-days
quick overtake the sullen corse
of winter's melancholy ways
a youthful second long.
